A three-vehicle accident at the intersection of Clark Street and Balmoral Avenue left a Lexus SUV flipped onto its roof and sent five people to the hospital this afternoon, according to police and fire officials.
Witnesses reported that the Lexus may have run a red light before colliding with a Ford van near the intersection, then striking a second car. The impact flipped the sport utility vehicle onto its roof.
Cindy Isham, who lives nearby, was driving her daughter home from school at about 3:45 p.m. when the accident occurred.
"I was just driving home when I saw the Lexus
run the red light," Isham said. "Then I heard the crash, so I pulled over."
"The car hit the van first," said her daughter, Georgia, who saw the crash. "Then it hit the green car and flipped," she said.
